Six Vendors Complete Test Event to Become Part of OpenFabrics Alliance Interoperability Logo Program

The OpenFabrics Alliance (OFA) today announced the results from its 15th Interoperability Logo test event held May 2013 at the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Lab (UNH-IOL) in Durham, New Hampshire and led by the OFA Interoperability Working Group (IWG). Six vendors participated and completed the required Interoperability Logo Program (OFILP) tests and earned the ability to use the coveted OFA/IOL tested logo for their products.

The six vendors that participated in the most recent test event and that are now included on the OFA logo list are:

  • Chelsio
  • DataDirect Networks
  • IBM
  • Intel
  • Mellanox
  • NetApp

“Seamless interoperability is a hallmark of products that are ready for mass deployment, and I congratulate the six vendors who completed the rigorous testing to earn a spot on the OFA logo list,” said Jim Ryan, chairman, OFA. “A healthy ecosystem enables end users with the choice of multi-vendor products that suit their individual needs.”

The interoperability test plan and detailed logo list can be accessed at the following sites:

The OFA will host its 14th Interoperability Debug Event at the UNH-IOL during the week of October 14-18, 2013. For more information or to register for the event, click here.

Benefits of OFILP

The OFA Interoperability Logo Program ensures that the products bearing the OFA Logo have passed the required interoperability testing and work with the latest OpenFabrics Enterprise Distribution (OFED) releases while interoperating with competitive products. Vendors who participate in the OFA logo program and operate with OFED enjoy the following benefits:

  • Validation that a device is compatible with OFA software components
  • Meets the transport independent characteristics of the OFA architecture and API
  • Interoperates with products from other vendors that also use OFED

For more information on the OFILP or if you are interested in becoming an OFA Logo Group (OFILG) member, please contact OFA Administration at [email protected] or visit the OFA Web site.
